Rachel Weisz in Trailer for Roger Michell's New Film 'My Cousin Rachel'
"How easy it must be for a woman like your cousin Rachel to twist you around her little finger…" Fox Searchlight has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming romantic drama My Cousin Rachel, adapted from Daphne Du Maurier's novel of the same name. My Cousin Rachel stars Rachel Weisz as the cousin of a young Englishman, who falls for her as he attempts to seek revenge on her for supposedly murdering his guardian. Sam Claflin co-stars, along with Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, Andrew Knott, and Poppy Lee Friar. This is a very powerful trailer with a very mood song in it that is designed to provoke emotions and pull viewers in. I'm curious, but not really sure what to expect, it seems a bit too romantic for my tastes.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Roger Michell's My Cousin Rachel, direct from YouTube:
